The Sims 2: Bon Voyage

The Sims 2: Bon Voyage Review

By Monica Bair |

Another six months, another expansion for The Sims 2. Bon Voyage is the sixth expansion for The Sims 2, not counting Stuff Packs, and the 13th overall expansion since Maxis unleashed this digital drug on us years ago. The various expansions have had their hits and their misses in regards to quality, so it's always a bit of a dice roll when installing a new one and taking your Sims for one more spin.

When it comes down to it, The Sims series has been about family. One thing about all the prior expansions, however, is that individuals were favored over whole families. Nightlife, for example, was all about romantic interactions and dates, or groups of friends. As anyone who's married will tell you, it's tough to Woo Hoo with a crying kid in the next room!

Bon Voyage, conversely, really adds a lot to the family dynamic in the game. This is obviously most appealing to role-players and other hardcore players who really get into the generational and familial aspects of The Sims 2. Entire families can go on vacations, upping their relationships with each other. And best of all, while on vacation, the rest of the family's affairs are in a time freeze. That means anyone can take vacations without risking job performance, friendships, grades, and so on.

At this point, it's safe to say that The Sims 2 has one of the best interfaces in gaming. It's simple, elegant, to-the-point, and easily grasped. Setting up vacations in Bon Voyage is perfectly streamlined into the rest of the game, with a simple phone call and a few dialog boxes the only things standing between your family and a sunny beach.

There's a lot to do on vacations, which is really the selling point. After all, if the vacations didn't have enough activities to do, the whole purpose of the expansion would be botched. There are many sights to see and even some secrets to discover, all of which are given to you in a checklist of sorts. If you managed to complete all 45 objectives with a single Sim, which will take at least three vacations to do, you'll receive a pretty decent reward for it.

Once a vacation is over, just like reality, a Sim's enjoyment of the vacation will carry with them to their daily lives. Certainly no one wants to go back to work, but you can choose rewards for your Sims such as temporary improved job performance, or even temporary boosted romantic attraction. Bad vacations result in negative consequences, because your Sims will carry their unhappiness to work and school with them.

Beyond that are souvenirs, which range from buyable items like little collectable statues to photographs of your journey. Vacation spots being the money pits that they are, you actually have to spend Simoleons (the in-game currency) to buy prints of your screenshots. Photographs and other souvenirs can lead to increased social meters, as your Sims' friends will want to talk about the vacation and its memories as well.

The problems with Bon Voyage, if we must be nitpicky, come from the fact that very little was actually changed for a Sim's home life. Granted that the temporary boosts from enjoyable vacations will be felt, but they are temporary and won't exactly make or break families. Also, vacations are very expensive, so it will take new families quite awhile before they can go on a long vacation. Established families, of course, won't have any trouble.

Sound and graphics are unchanged from previous iterations of the series of course, and there's nothing here that will convert you to The Sims if you never liked the series before. For Sims fanatics though, there will be plenty here to keep you entertained for another dozen hours.

Vacation Hot Spots - SBV500

Going on vacation is the new way for your sims to sit back and relax. Be warned
that going on vacation isn't cheap so before going, make sure you have enough
funds for your trip. Funds you'll need is for hotel stays (for all sims going),
house sitting money to watch over your pets and/or toddlers/babies. It costs
250 up front for the house sitter. If you'd like, have an engaged couple take
a honeymoon instead of a vacation. Once your Sims are ready, head over to the
phone and choose vacation then book it from there. Remember, the longer you go
out from the date, the cheaper it will be. Same applies for Sims going. Less
sims means less money it will cost.

If the Sims go 'now' the cost will be 500. A day later it will be 483. Two
days out will cost 466. Plus three days out will be 450. Four days later will
be 433. Heading out five days will be 416 and six being 400.

Once you picked your vacation spot, you can choose the hotel you'd like to stay
in or choose it upon arrival.

[Takemizu Village - SBV501] 

"Combined with beautiful scenery, screne locals, and delicious foods, the
Takemizu Village offers a peaceful and relaxing vacation for your family and
friends. Learn about the local customs and history while enjoying the beautiful
sights. Come stay at this tranquil vacation spot that promises not to 
disappoint." For those who have the Seasons Expansion pack, the seasons for
vacation spot are Spring -> Spring -> Autumn -> Autumn. 

[Hotels - SBV502]

There are four different hotels you can choose from in the Takemizu Village.
choose from at that hotel. Before you decide on your hotel, here's a bit more
on each of them.

Flaming Dragon Hotel: Price . The seasoned traveler always expects the
best and that's what the Flaming Dragon is all about. Enjoy our private Zen
Garden and get a good night's sleep in our four-star establishment. 
Prices start at 640 for a single and 777 for a double.

Jade's Exclusive Villas: Price . Looking for more privacy then the average
hotel provides? Stay at the Jade's Exclusive Villa and enjoy a private home
away from home. Prices range from 447 for a double and 914 for four beds.

[Room Service / Dining Out - SBV503]

Once you're nice and snug in your hotel, you can order room service. This is
one of the vacation memories you have listed. To order room service, go to the
phone then choose room service. The foods you get are the normal ones - pork
chops, hamburgers and so forth. There's a few new foods you get - Fried Chicken
and Lime Seared Prawns. There's also Filet Mignon and a glass of water. For
the dessert Sims, there's Nectarine Tartlette. Costs vary on the type of food
you decide to order.

[Vacation Homes - SBV504]

If you plan to take many vacations, it may be a good idea to invest in a home
for your vacation. While you don't get bills for this home, you can only stay
in them for the length of your vacation. In the Takemzi Village, you have two
houses you can pick from that are already located in the bin. To buy one, click
on the phone, choose Real Estate then buy Vacation Home.

Green Thicket Manor - This sophisticated dwelling is the perfect home-base for
an exciting family vacation. Cost: 33,140

Pearl Mist Estate - Enjoy a thrilling mountain view and the comforts of home at
the Pearl Mist Estate. Cost: 26,742

[Community Lots - SBV505]

What's a vacation without places to go? In Takemzui Village, it offers a few
relaxing places with a lot to see and do. You can buy two souvenirs in the
community lots. Pagoda by Oh The Memories is a small building while the
Doll by Oh The Memories is a small wood like doll. Both are priced at 75.

Immortal Zen Garden: Come bring your friends and family to this relaxing
destination where you are surrounded with beautiful scenery and social

Lucky Shrine Park: Come and relax at the Lucky Shrine Park. Pay a visit to the
shrine, have a bite to eat, relax at the lake, or challenge your friends to a
game of Mahjong.

Takemizu Pagoda and Market: For centuries local vendors have come to sell their
wares outside the great pagoda of Takemizu. Beautiful clothing, hand made
jewelry, rare souvenirs, and local cuisine can all be found here in the shadow
of the great pagoda.

Takemizu Village Hot Springs: For years, the Takemizu Village Hot Springs has
revitalized the energy and spirit for those who have visited here. Sit back and
loosen up for this tranquil experience.

Three Comers Food Mart: This food mart is the first place all Sims should
experience. Not only provides the most exotic foods and great atmosphere, it's
cheap too!

*Secret Area: Pagoda in the Shadows: Nestled in a quiet valley, this graceful
structure exudes serenity. Yet you feel an inexplicable hurry to reach it. It's
almost as if it were... your destiny. **Can be reached by taking tours or
digging the map up. The map you need is "Map to Pagoda in the Shadows"

[Tours - SBV506]

When your sims aren't learning new things or visiting all the shopping areas,
have them take a tour of three different areas for that vacation spot. While on
these tours, a chance card (like the ones you get for your job) will pop up.
From there, pick an answer to see what reward or possibly negative effect you
will get.

Historical Walking Tour: Take a guided walk through some of the ancient,
historic, and most popular destinations in the region. It will cost 100 per
person. Do you want to go on this tour?

River Boat Tour: Glide down the river and experience nature firsthand on this
river boat tour. It will cost 200 per person. Do you want to go on this tour?

Bamboo Forest Tour: Take a helicopter to the edge of a natural, untouched
bamboo forest and walk amongst the bamboo on this tour. It will cost 300 per
person. Do you want to go on this tour?

[Learned abilities - SBV507]

During the time you're on vacation, there will be a few new things that your
sim will want to do. They'll want to learn the local dance and wave. Each one
is native to the area. In Takemizu Village, the local gesture is a bow. It will
be a greeting that the locals will do to you. Keep doing it once you've had it
done to 'master' the gesture. The local dance for the area is Tai Chi. I
found this one to be rather annoying to learn. You have to go to a place that
has music and wait for someone to start. Once they do, join in. From there, you
will learn it.

Aside from the local gesture, you can learn to do an acupressure massage for
500 and have them done to do for 1000. While here, you can learn to teleport
from the local ninja. You'll have to chase him around the vacation spots and
answer his question. The questions are like chance cards. Don't forget to stop
by the secret lot to learn the dragon tale from the Old Man.

[Objectives - SBV508]

With the vacation slowly coming to an end, there are different objectives that
your sim wanted to do on that particular vacation. Roughly, there are about 14
or so different things that could have been done at Takemizu Village.

Vacation Mementos: Ate chirashi, Drank tea, Learned Acupressure Massage, Tai
chi, the Dragon Legend, learned to Bow and learned teleport, raked Zen garden,
Went on a Far East vacation, Wished at Lucky Shrine and Won at Mahjong.

If your sim really enjoyed their vacation, they will be able to choose from 6
different rewards that will stay with them for about 48 hours. What you can
choose from are Carefree, Refreshed, Productive, Je ne sais quoi, Industrious,
and Forgiving.

Carefree gives you one additional want slot. Refreshed gives your sims a boost
in skill building and badge building, homework can be done faster. Productive
allows the social, comfort and fun needs to decay slower. Je ne sais quoi
makes it easier for romance with your sims while Industrious makes promos at
work much easier. Carefree means that your sims will be much harder to annoy as
well as furious relationships will be forgiven.

==[Twikkii Island - SBV509]==

"If you've never been to a beach then you definitely don't want to miss
spending your next vacation on Twikkii Island. You'll be dazzled by the rolling
waves, exciting culture, and the world famous Pirate Wreck. So come visit and
take a break in a beach hammock, shop for some stylish local goods or get a
soothing massage." Those who have Seasons Installed, the seasons are summer all
year round.

[Hotels - SBV510]

Blossom Wood Hotel: Price Range . A quaint and cozy tropical rest stop. Stay
the night or stay for good! Enjoy your hotel stay! Prices start at 328 for a
single and 682 for a triple.

Double Palm Resort: Price . A stay at the Double Palms is a statement to the
world that you are ready for a relaxing vacation. Book a room, get a massage
and let your worries disappear. You're looking at 435 for a single and about
835 for a triple.

Potterhouse Bungalows: Price . Looking for more privacy than an average
hotel provides? Stay at the Potterhouse and enjoy a home away from home. For a
double room, it'll be about 936 and having four beds, it'll cost you 1,524.

Twikkii Beach Hotel: Price . For ocean-front relaxation and easy beach
access nothing beats the Twikkii Hotel. A single room will cost about 875,
where a triple will run you 1,118.

[Room Service / Dining Out - SBV511]

Like before, you can order room service. You won't get the memory in your
travel memories if you've done it before but it's still a choice. Same foods
as the Takemizu Village with the same prices so nothing new there. As before,
dining out is there for those who'd like to eat out instead of having it all
delivered to their room.

[Vacation Homes - SBV512]

Once more, you can buy a vacation home for your sims if you do decide to travel
a lot. There's only two preset ones but you can build your own. The two preset
ones are listed below.

and comfortable accommodations. Brought to you by Brickstone.

different stores to visit for clothes, jewelry and so forth. Don't forget that
you also can get two new items as souvenirs. They are a Little Chest of Booty
and Private Island Figurine. The chest is just a small treasure chest where the
island figurine is a palm tree on a small island. Both items are priced at 75.

searching for the Monkey Ruins of Jumbok IV.

Twikki Beach Boardwalk: Take a stroll down the boardwalk and enjoy the tasty
local food; exciting shops with trinkets and jewelry and energetic fiery

Whitesand Hot Springs: Hot water has never felt so refreshing! When you step
into one of these relaxing hot springs, all of your worries, stress, and
troubles will surely melt away! After soaking, stop at the food stand for a
tasty treat!

jungle. A strange energy seems to emanate from it, and it somehow seems to be

500 and have them done to do for 1000. While here, you can learn to teleport
from the local ninja. You'll have to chase him around the vacation spots and
answer his question. The questions are like chance cards. Don't forget to stop

around to learn them. Native to this area is the greeting of a chest pound.
Sims will beat their chests with their fists. The local dance is the slap dance
which is where your sims will slap themselves as they dance.

There is a local massage that your Sims can learn for 500. The massage is
the Deep Tissue Massage. You'll also have to make a detour to find the local
Bigfoot so your sim can collect that vacation memory.

different rewards that will stay with them for about 48 hours. What you can
choose from are Carefree, Refreshed, Productive, Je ne sais quoi, Industrious,

Carefree gives you one additional want slot. Refreshed gives your sims a boost
in skill building and badge building, homework can be done faster. Productive
allows the social, comfort and fun needs to decay slower. Je ne sais quoi
makes it easier for romance with your sims while Industrious makes promos at
work much easier. Carefree means that your sims will be much harder to annoy as
well as furious relationships will be forgiven.

/-[Customize Your Sims - SBV600]-

Being able to make your sims has been around since the Sims first started. What
is so different with Bon Voyage is that they are taking it to the next level.
You're now able to add jewelry to your Sim. For those with the Nightlife EP
installed, you have some new turn on's and offs. Along with this new EP, you
will get new hairstyles, clothes and glasses.

[Jewelry - SBV601]

With the jewelry, you can add silver/gold rings to your sims fingers. They fit
on index, pinky, and thumbs. These can only be worn by teens and up. You're
also welcomed to add new bracelets to your sims. With these, you're given some
choices of watches. They can be worn on either hand. The bracelets come in gold
or silver or a butterfly/heart pattern. There are also a beads pattern that is
on some of the bracelets. Along with those, you can add a new necklace to your
sims. There's a nice variety to them. Some come in colors while others have
different items hanging down. Some are unique to each area of the vacations.
From the age of a child and up, Sims can wear them. Next your Sims can put on
some earrings. These range from colored studs to hoops to different designs
from the vacation locations. Last new jewelry that has been added is facial
piercings. Your Sims can now have lip rings, eyebrow rings, nose rings and the
alike. With the nose, you can also have studs. Colors are the standard gold and
silver. Lip rings can be placed in the middle, right or left side. Nose can be
either side as well a ring in the middle.

[Clothes - SBV602]

Along with new jewelry, you have some new clothes for your Sims. Mostly, the
new clothes come from the different vacation areas. For women, there's 5 new
kimonos, all in different colors. 6 new tropical outfits with different colors
as well as with or without lays. There is one lumberjack for the women. Along
with those there is 4 hiker/backpacker outfits, again with different colors.
For the male gender, there are 3 grass skirts/socks for that tropical feel. 4
outfits are lumberjack for the Three Lakes vacation spot. The hiker/backpacker
has 4 outfits whereas the kimonos have 6. Also for the men, there's 4 outdoors
one for like summer. For the fall time, there's 5 long pants for men. There's
the same for teens of both genders. Mixed with that is some new summer clothes
for female kids but nothing too spectacular.

[Facial Hair - SBV603]

Men are given some new facial hair. There are only three new ones but it's a
start. They come in all the hair colors. First one is a curled up mustache at
the ends that curl towards the nose with a gap in the middle and a small
goatee that just covers the chin. Second one is a really shaggy one with lots
of loose hairs covering the chin, upper lip, and cheeks. Last one is a very
subtle line of hair that extends from the lower lip to three quarters of a way
down the chin. Men do have one new set of eyebrows to match the subtle goatee. 

[Glasses - SBV604]

Some new glasses have been added for this particular EP. For females, there
are 7 new glasses. Four of them are big round ones with semi-thick frames. The
colors are black, bright green, white/yellow, and pink. The other 3 are big,
long, and have a lens covering part of the nose and all of the eyes. The frame
colors are two yellow and one white. The lenses are black, pink, and a yellow /
gray. All of them are see through. For the males, there are also 7 glasses.
Three of them are big square block ones with white or gray frames plus black or
gray see through lenses. The last 4 are slanted squares with a slight oval look
to them. The frames are gray, black, and white with blue, orange, and black

[Hair - SBV605]

Finally some new female hair has been added. There's only three and that come
in the normal colors. First is a long hair that has bangs extending down the
face and seems to go a bit of ways past the shoulders. Next are similar to
those but with shorter bangs and have a grass bandana around the head. Those
bandanas come in two colors. Men are given 5 new hair styles (if you wish to
call it that). First two are the different colored grass bandanas while the
others are big like hats that go up a few inches with a band around the bottom
of the hat. The hats come in tan / thick dark brown band, tan / thick rust
colored band, and the last is a tan / small black band.

[Turn On and Offs - SBV606]

For those with the Nightlife EP, you have some new turn offs. They mostly deal
with zombie/plant people and so forth. Sims can also now be attracted to Sims'
skills - like cooking, cleaning, etc. Job performance can also be selected as
one of the turn on or offs. 

~[FAQs - SBV700]~

First off, don't send me emails asking for cd keys, where you can download the
game or anything like that. I'll just ignore them.

1) What is so great about Bigfoot?

1a) He comes will maxed skills, all gold badges, very easy to be promoted in
the job area. He can be a zombie or a vampire but not a plant or werewolf. He
also can't become romantic with sims or have kids. He will age and die like any
other sim.

2) Who is the Unsavory Charlatan and what does he do?

2a) He's the pickpocket NPC. He'll try to con your sims' money but if you fight
him, you can win it back. Calling the police won't get him arrested but instead
he'll just not visit any community lot your sim is on for three days.

3) Who can go on vacation?

3a) Children and up can go on vacation. For those with pets, you'll have to
keep them at home as they can't go on vacation either.

4) Can I invite my vacation friends over?

4a) Yes you can. They will stay in your home for three days. The same applies
to all your sim friends.

5) Can I build Hotels?

5a) You can build them and set the lot Hotel (See the Secrets and Cheats on GF)
but you can't actually run the hotel itself. 

6) How can I get the treasure that's worth 5000?
6a) Luck really. You just have to keep digging.

If I come across any other common questions, I'll make sure to post them.
